Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to fix a fence?

The average cost of fence repairs is around $250, with most homeowners paying anywhere between $200 and $300. Fence repairs have a wide range of potential costs, however, ranging from $50 to as much as $1,443. The cost of your fence repair project depends on multiple factors, including where you live, what type of repair you need, the terrain and the fence materials used.

Why does my gate sag?

A gate can sag for a number of reasons. One common reason is that the screws holding the hinges in the wood or other post material have come loose, causing gravity to pull the fence down. Another common problem is the gate post’s lack of stability. Posts can become loose and start to lean, or if they are wooden, they can even rot at the point where they meet the ground.

What are some common fence repairs?

The most common fence repairs are aimed at fixing:

  • Missing boards or slats. This is a common problem with wood fences.
  • Fence material corrosion. This occurs on metal fences like chain link and iron.
  • A sagging gate. This could result from a tilting fence post or loose hinges.
  • Post movement. Typically, this is caused by frost, corrosion or water.
  • Stains. Moisture and other elements can stain fencing, which may require a professional to remove it.
  • Warping. Warped, curled, cupped or bent boards are unsightly and less effective and need to be replaced.

If you notice any of the above issues with your fence, reach out to fence repair professionals near you to start getting cost estimates and schedule an appointment.

Should I repair or replace my fence?

Fence repair is better for common problems that only affect small areas, such as a broken picket or a shifting fence post. However, there is a rule of thumb to follow: If the repair project requires replacing 20% or more of your fence, it’s probably time to replace the whole fence. The exception to this rule is if the fence is fairly new and just part of it is damaged. 

Who installs fences?

Fencing contractors are the best choice when you want to have a fence installed on your property. While there are several types of professionals who can likely handle this service — including handymen, landscapers and general contractors — a fencing contractor has the experience to know what could cause potential problems in the long run. This might include wet spots, vegetation or other issues with the land. 

When choosing a professional to install a fence on your property, make sure they have credentials and experience.

How much does it cost to fix a gate?

Gates can be more expensive to fix than other parts of a fence, and there are several reasons for this. The first is that gates are the only moving parts on a fence — hence they have more components that can wear out, as well as friction and the potential for rusting and sagging. Fixing a gate may require a total replacement or simply replacing certain components like hinges. Sometimes, the repair may involve fixing the surrounding fence.

Contact several gate repair professionals near you to get an accurate cost estimate for your gate.

What are some common gate repairs?

The most common gate repairs tend to be associated with a sagging gate. A gate repair professional will check the hinge system. If the hinges have come loose, they will detach the gate, set the hinges in the proper location and reattach everything. 

Another common repair is replacing or repairing a sagging fence post by digging a new posthole and/or using a concrete footing.

What's the cheapest fence to install?

The cheapest type of fence to install is (usually) a chain-link fence. Averaging between $7 and $12 per linear foot, this type of fencing is strong and secure and allows homeowners to maintain visibility while adding protection to their property. Chain-link fences are constructed from steel coated in aluminum, vinyl or zinc for weather resistance. 

You can get a more accurate cost estimate for your chain-link fence by contacting professionals who specialize in installing these fences.

How much does it cost to install a wood fence?

Help define your property line, protect your home and yard, and boost your curb appeal with a new wood fence. The national average for wood fence installation cost is $3,250. Wood fence installation costs will vary based on your geographic location, the type of wood you select, the height and style of wood fence you desire, and the condition of your property. Pressure-treated pine is a common and attractive choice that is usually resilient against rot and bugs. Cedar is another budget-friendly option that, although more expensive than pressure-treated pine, can be more affordable than redwood or teak. A wood fence requires maintenance to ensure its long-term health and beauty, so keep future staining and painting costs in mind when you’re calculating fence installation costs. Here are some examples of how height and material affect the approximate cost of wood fences:

  • 6-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence: $15-$17 per linear foot.
  • 4-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence: $13-$20 per linear foot.
  • Cedar fence: $18-$25 per linear foot.
  • 6-foot-high, double-sided (meaning both sides are uniform), pressure-treated pine fence with 6x6 posts: $25 per linear foot.
  • 12-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence with custom detailing: $75 per linear foot.
  • 6-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence with a custom lattice top: $30-$50 per linear foot.

How much does it cost to put up a chain-link fence?

Chain-link fence is one of the most affordable options for adding safety and value to your home or business. The national average chain-link fence installation cost is $2,750. Chain-link fences are relatively simple for the pros to install; a fence of less than 150 linear feet can often be put up in under one day. A good rule of thumb is to add an additional workday for each additional 100 linear feet of fence to be installed.

Chain-link fence installation costs are affected by the fluctuating cost of steel, regional labor rates, the height of fence you select, and the features you select, such as a powder-coated finish. The industry standard is galvanized steel, which is rust- and corrosion-resistant. Galvanized chain-link fence installation cost, including labor and materials, is typically $12 per linear foot. For a more contemporary and elegant option, black powder-coated galvanized chain-link fence might cost approximately $15 per linear foot on average, including materials and labor. For industrial sites or businesses, 10-foot-high galvanized chain-link fences may provide additional security, but also have an added cost. A 10-foot-high chain-link fence could cost $17-$18 per linear foot, including labor and materials.

Reviews for Pensacola fence professionals
Paulette M.
These fine gentlemen were fast, one day for an estimate, the next they put in poles and the next the fence was finished! They took in account we have small dogs so put the fence lower without even a second thought, and worked long and hard in pretty cold weather. The fence looks beautiful and I give them the highest review possible!

Vernon and his crew did an excellent job replacing my fence. Only one minor issue with materials that was their suppliers mistake and was easily and quickly resolved. The job was even finished a day earlier than expected. Our experience in the area makes that alone a 5-star rating!

Showed up on time for estimate. Fixed my mailbox while we talked about the job. Then after I hired them for the fencing job, they went above and beyond by recommending a pest control service for a problem and a tree service for large tree branch that had broken but never fell to the ground that I had not noticed. They will be my goto phone call for all work I need done. If they don't do it they know someone who can.

Lester is charming and warm, which we now know is a front to get the job. We hired Lester to build a fence and install a range vent. First, he lied about his crew’s licensing. One of them admitted this. Second, his crew stomped a/c tubing in the attic and didn’t tell us. We have to live with the resulting mildew and leak until Fall when a crew can work in attic. Third, Lester showed up to build the fence without proper equipment. The machine he used to cut the two by fours was so dull it splintered the wood like crazy. Fourth, much of the work was not measured and it shows. The cuts were sloppy and lazy and uneven. Not enough screws were used to properly secure the wood. Both gates began sagging the day they were created and installed and will now barely open. He told us his wife saw pictures and told him he couldn’t leave the gates like that! He left them like that. First 3 photos taken right after being built. Fifth, he never returned to finish the job after scheduling a date, twice. Sixth, after lying to us repeatedly, he never even pulled the permit to build the fence. He said he had it, but never produced it. We called the county and no such permit exists. We hired Lester based on his reviews here. Something doesn’t add up. I would check your permits and don’t let his constantly changing stream of questionable characters in your home. We trusted this person and his crew in our home with just me and my daughter at home. Scary. He showed me pictures of his new child and talked about volunteering for storm clean up, etc. He is a wolf in sheep’s clothing and a shame to his profession. We intend to call the Better Business Bureau and pursue all available options. This shouldn’t be happening to people.

Scott is ripping off the public with a scam I will now describe in detail. Please beware of Scott especially if you are in the military or a Department of Defense employee. That being said, I hired Scott to repair a fence. I sent him several photos of the project and he stopped by the property to get a real time look and we signed a quote that stated the labor cost would be $300 and I would pay for materials. Initially on this website 'Thumbtack" he stated that it should take no longer than one day to complete the job. After 5 days and several trips to Home Depot to pick up materials that I paid for (several hundred dollars) over the phone Scott decided to stop the job. Scott wanted an additional $300 for labor on top of his originally quoted $300 for a total of $600 and was wasting materials because he kept changing the project. I told him that I could not afford that increase and that he quoted me $300 total labor. I even told him that I would add an additional $100 as incentive for him to complete the job. He disagreed and stopped the job. He used profanity on the phone and threatened to call my Officer in Charge at my workplace to complain about me. (This is a tactic many companies use in this area to threaten military) He uses the fact that if you work for the Department of Defense as either Active duty or a DOD Civilian as leverage to increase his labor costs. He figures the threat of a phone call to the Officer in Charge at your workplace will scare the victim into paying additional labor costs. This has also been reported to the Better Business bureau. Please beware of this company and the scam he has devised to double labor costs in the middle of a job. He only completed 25% and stopped while demanding $300 additional in labor costs. Do yourself a big favor and DO NOT use this company.
